**** NOTES ON SECURITY****
Considering international media attention focussing on current events in the Middle East, we would like to assure our customers and visitors that day-to-day life in Dahab carries on as normal. Dahab is a quiet, peaceful town with a hippy vibe and is globally renowned as a watersports destination of excellence.
While we understand that first-time visitors may be put off by negative media reports, please note that Dahab and the surrounding area has not been involved in any security issues. If you have any enquiries regarding the current security situation in the tourist haven of South Sinai, please don’t hesitate to ask - we’ll give you honest ‘insider’ updates.
Our goal is to provide and teach professional free diving courses to all levels of ability in a fun yet professional and safety-oriented manner, with a view to creating a welcoming community within our facilities where free divers can return to train or learn with friends old and new.
Using our expertise, skills and knowledge we aim to make our students aware of the various physiological and psychological processes involved in freediving, with a view to producing freedivers who feel relaxed and safe in the full knowledge of what they are doing, with the awareness that their mental and physical responses are normal.
It is our belief that freediving can only be effectively advanced by prioritising safety and instilling a broad awareness of rescue techniques in all our students.
We endeavour to get to know our customers well, to be in a position to evaluate and advise effectively; technique, repetition, a dose of humour and positive energy will be the KEY to overcoming mental barriers.
